We liked this place okay, but right next door is a much better restaurant that serves Vietnamese food (the Rickshaw). We went to La Casita once, but three times to the Rickshaw.

“best burritos”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

we are locals who go to La Casita every week, we love the casual atmosphere there but always receive great service. The house wine is very good and their burritos and pizza the best. All makes for an inexpensive dining out experience one can do regularly. Thank you for adding La Casita to the "MURI MUNCHY MILE" we love it!! M& S Muri

“As any mexican restaurant in NZ, good dinner value”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The restaurant is by the main road (a 2-minute walk from Muri Beach Club Hotel) and is only opened for dinner. The setting is nice, loved the colourful chairs and there was latino music played on the speakers, creating a proper atmosphere.

The items on the menu are very reasonably priced, meal size is just about right and the quality of the food is as in any NZ mexican restaurant (i.e. just fine). It's the only place we've come across on the island that served ice-cream fruit salad.

Overall, despite it not being the best mexican meal I ever had, the restaurant is still a nice 'exotic' addition to pretty uniform (and overpriced, e.g. The Flame Tree) dining options in town.
